"I think it's just coincidence. I've had a full beard for 12 years and over that time my chest hair has spread down to my stomach but that's just age. The same would have happened if I'd shaved for the whole time."
It's just seems natural that Art of Manliness should have a barbershop group. My intent of this group is to gather and share general thoughts and experiences concerning barbershops. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop. See More

"It seems to me that society has lost the difference between focusing on the self and selfishness. Many people seem to think that 'finding yourself' means doing exactly what you want and to hell with the consequences rather than taking a…"
"I don't agree 100%. I think you're right in that sometimes the phrase 'finding myself' is just used as an excuse to act like an asshole but that's not always the case.

"As an atheist I would agree. Atheism is not a specific world view it is simply an absence of belief in a supernatural, supreme deity. Comparing one Atheist with another, in many circumstances is as pointless as comparing a Roman Catholic with a…"
"I'm going out on a limb here- stop apologizing for no longer believing in a superstition. If there was a catholic sister in a Protestant family? Or a Methodist brother in a group of Presbyterians- would that even deserve comment? Just go to…"
"Don't attack them for their faith. It does nothing but make them more and more against you. I found that I would have days where I would want nothing more to burn a church down, bash down religion. But it's their life, and you have yours.…"
